Recent corproate work for a German company based in Singapore. The head office in Germany needed new images of the management in Singapore. I was hired to come in to do 2 different set of images for a group of people.
My job is a communicator, putting people at ease when they are facing my camera, numerous time i have seen how people went stiff or unsure what to do? Communicating with my subject is important to ease anxiety or stiffness. I always get them to smile as naturally as possible unless brief is otherwise. Per subject image can varies from 10-15 to 30-40 shots in different angles and poses. People are usually busy, so my time with them has to keep it short and make the most out of it. Bear in mind smiling for camera is tiring.
